    Controlling the various slide and high speed precision = v. cool.

    Going round and round till you pop the tires = stupid. Even I could do that.

    kaagan are you sure thats the size motor it is? that car must be a feather, like 1000 lbs, to it to get to 60 in 1.9 s. most amazing driving I`ve ever seen. I`d drive that fiesta.

    ok unless the WRX sti in the infomercial is street legal, (judging from the sound I`m not sure) the Fiesta puts it to shame. you can really see the amazing acceleration this thing has. Why fiesta? anyone know?

    Ken Block is a beast. Didn`t he roll an STi off a ramp really badly at the x-games some years back? If so - apparently, it didn`t slow him down any.

    Either way - this is an amazing demonstration of skill.

    "you can really see the amazing acceleration this thing has"

    Hahaha, that thing isn`t any more a Ford Fiesta than a Studebaker is a Space Shuttle. 650HP might have something to do with that 0-60 in 1.9. Why did they choose a Fiesta? Marketing. Because morons think this car might in some way, shape or form resemble the $14,000 car you`d buy from the dealer. This car is RWD for goodness sake. The fiesta portion of this car is nothing more than the body which I am sure even was heavily modified to fit in a totally different chassis, suspension and everything else.

    That being said. I would trust Ken Block to perform open heart surgery on my with a scalpel attached to the hood of his car.

    It`s actually engineered for 800hp. He has it detuned a bit to get a better trade-off between performance and handling.

    The people who made(*) that car are as impressive in their field as Ken Block is at gymkhana.

    * I say "made" rather than "modded" because I doubt if any of the car is original. It`s been changed more than Red Victor 2.

    Gymkhana 1 and Gymkhana 2 are equally worth watching. Not 3.1 though - that`s a music video advertising shoes, which is also what these Gymkhana videos are for. If all adverts were this good, I might watch more TV.

    For the top stuff in driving, try watching WRC. Mental stuff - 130mph+ on single lane tracks in the rain at night and corners by the dozen. Ken Block`s having a go at WRC and doing well for a rookie. I think he`ll be a serious contender in a few years.

    Sebastian Loeb, the best today.

    Even more insane was Group B, a bloody dangerous idea in the mid 1980s. They created an unrestricted group and utterly under-estimated what car engineers could do with a blank slate. It ended up with rally cars more powerful than F1 cars, cars that could do 0-60 in 2.1s on a gravel track. With 1980s suspension, brakes, etc.

    Ah, the glorious noise!

    Loved the video, it`s like..I never knew they had courses like this in real life, or driving ability. I always thought it was restricted to a game like DiRT, haha.

    No way, I just read an article about this in Wheels in the doctor`s office yesterday. Ken Block is a millionaire who made all his money off t-shirt designs and DC shoes, who randomly decided to buy top-end rally cars and play with them in the least likely places. As of January this year he didn`t want to go to Europe for rally because a) There`s not as much advertising potential in America, and b) he couldn`t take his favourite WRX with him.
